This year marks the 151st anniversary of the founding of Canada and as part of a countrywide Canada Day celebration, the Halifax Regional Municipality will be hosting a series of free events and interactive celebrations at multiple sites in Halifax and Dartmouth.
Atlantic Canada’s largest free-concert will be returning to Alderney Landing waterfront for an evening filled with award winning performers . For his first ever East Coast performance, Juno nominee Allan Rayman will prove why he is considered one of the world`s breakthrough artists of 2018. His unique sound has captured millions of views online and got him booked at major music festivals this year including Osheaga, Field Trip, Bunbury Music Festival and many more. Allan will feel right at home alongside Juno Nominee Mo Kenney, who`s new album, The Details, received solo recording of the year at the 2018 ECMAs. Rounding out the daytime lineup will be T Thomason and Alfie.
The day ends with the municipality’s annual fireworks show, above the Halifax Harbour, but the night continues featuring festival favourite, Skratch Bastid. Skratch is one of Canada’s most incredible live performers. Watch him take you on a musical journey! The best viewing area for the fireworks will be at the Alderney Landing Events Plaza.
Our Gold Sponsor Dartmouth Crossing will also be hosting a Kickoff Party to the weekend on June 29th at the Pondside Amphitheatre. They will host music, fireworks and FREE CAKE!
